Finally...

My bouncing signal bounced over the canyon 7 days ago and never came back. I kept running to my computer to read blogs, check e-mails, order invitations, do research, etc. I would get halfway to the office and realize, "Oh, I don't have an Internet connection." But I would always double check, thinking maybe my dear lost signal had found it's way home. It never did.

This morning I am happy to report my new service is up and running. I'm a little giddy from the excitement. I can't wait to catch up with everyone. I also can't wait to catch up on posts for all my blogs. They've been dancing around in my head for days, now to just find the time to write them all down!

To leave you with a little chuckle here is a little something my oldest daughter said while the family watched Star Wars Return of the Jedi the other night. My husband recorded it on his Facebook page.

Last night I found my daughters enthralled with "Return of the Jedi." They seemed to have a hard time keeping the characters straight, and I was constantly being bombarded with questions. I did my best to answer.
During one scene, the Emperor wants to demonstrate to Luke the futility of resisting the dark side of the force. In an ominous voice, the Emperor issues an order to the Death Star to destroy the rebel starship fleet:
"Commander, fire at will!"
Em pipes up, "Who is Will?"

Do you remember that scene? We really got a good laugh out of Em's question, what fun!

Out of the mouth of babes! Too cute. I'm with Em, though, I never could keep those characters or sides straight. I'm definitely not the sci-fi type.

Glad to have you back in cyber world. That must have been very frustrating.

Ha! How funny! That would so be ME watching... never have gotten into Star Wars. But around here, it wouldn't surprise me if SOMEBODY ended up a fan!

Glad you liked the notebooking post, and very glad you are back online!

Good idea to record the kids statements. Cheryl and I have a notebook full of them. They are as fun to go back and look at as photographs. wb

Jody Hedlund said...

How did you survive without internet?! Yikes! :) And my kiddos are into Star Wars too; what an adorable question from your daughter!

Kara said...

Jessica, I was starting to get a little crazy!
Warren, that is a wonderful idea about the notebook.
Jody, I'm afraid I didn't survive very well...lots of mumbling and complaining:)

Children always say the cutest things. I love watching movies with them.

I'm so glad you are reconnectied. I actually do know what that feels like when you can't blog for some reason. Yeah! Have fun.
